    Well we have been busy trying to get the car ready for the upcoming Ultimate Street Car Association event in Fontana June 12-14. Our upgrades include a torque arm rear suspension, full-floating 9" rear, mini-tub, and 315 rubber out back, and a set of our new subframe connectors. The car is finally all together, and ready to get some quick testing in. Hope all goes well. Just a bit of street testing showed the car hooks way better under hard power. Now we will test and see if it still turns well!

    And Yes the future owner of the car is very pleased!

    I'm really interested in your driving impressions with this set-up.
    I've put off buying the torque arm because I just haven't seen much feedback.

    I'm rooting for ya!

    Well all went really well. First in class, but i knocked 2 more seconds off after the event doing some extra testing. Still more to be found. Feel is good, just need to to get used to the rear grip I haven't ever had before!

    That's exciting!

    Is that a Speedtech sway bar?

    We may go to that type of sway bar in our 2G suspension package with leafsprings in the future as it allows more options for exhaust
